I have reported the coordinate bug also in the family forum. Trying to see if I can get some kind of attention here as well.

 

There is an error in the Longitude East implementation in element organizer. This is visible after saving metadata or exporting the files.I checked the format with EXIF reader sw.

Original data

Elements output

Longitude 17,55 is converted to 17, longituderef missing.

Most external sw cannot read this format, probably because of missing decimals. Windows Photo and Icloud can read it and uses the long E according to above, 17 degree. In this case around 50-55 km's off. If you are just above a degree the error will not be as significant.

I am using Elements 19. 

Should be easy to correct. long W is working so it should be straight forward to just compare the difference in the implementation between W and E.
 
I can accept a rounding of the coordinates but this big error makes the element organizer useless. I can not save any tags as this also corrupts the coordinates. The position is ok within the element organizer.
